New York – The Buffalo hockey players beat Montreal 7:2 in the NHL program on Tuesday and ended their eight-game losing streak. Jeff Skinner scored five points for two goals and three assists, Tage Thompson had a four-point night.

The game in Montreal started at a frantic pace, not a minute had passed and Buffalo was leading 2-0 after goals by Rasmus Dahlin and John Jason Peterka. At 2:57 it was already 3:1. The Sabers first scored a three-goal lead from Alex Tuch, but then Cole Caufield reduced it.

The Sabres’ three goals in the opening 2 minutes and 13 seconds are the seventh-fastest start to a game in NHL history. The record is held by Washington hockey players, who scored three times in a minute and 21 seconds in the 1986/1987 season.

In the second part, both teams added one accurate hit, but the third act belonged to the visitors again. The Buffalo hockey players added three goals in it and achieved the highest win of the season so far.

Skinner confirmed that he is doing well in Montreal. With his five-point performance, he followed up last year’s performance when he destroyed the Canadiens at Center Bell with four goals and one assist, and became the first player in history to score five points more than once on Montreal ice.
